A New York Times and Washington Post Bestseller Bestselling author, basketball legend and cultural commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores the heart of issues that affect Americans today. Since retiring from professional basketball as the NBA's all-time leading scorer, six-time MVP, and Hall of Fame inductee, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a lauded observer of culture and society, a New York Times bestselling author, and a regular contributor to The Washington Post, TIME magazine and TIME.com. He now brings that keen insight to the fore in Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White, his most incisive and important work of non-fiction in years. He uses his unique blend of erudition, street smarts and authentic experience in essays on the country's seemingly irreconcilable partisan divide - both racial and political, parenthood, and his own experiences as an athlete, African-American, and a Muslim. The book is not just a collection of expositions; he also offers keen assessments of and solutions to problems such as racism in sports while speaking candidly about his experiences on the court and off. Timed for publication as the nation debates whom to send to the White House, the combination of plain talk on issues, life lessons, and personal stories places Writings on the Wall squarely in the middle of the conversation, as many of Abdul-Jabbar's topics are at the top of the national agenda. Whether it is sparring with Donald Trump, within the pages of TIME magazine, or full-length features in the The New York Times Magazine, writers, critics, and readers have come to agree on what The Washington Post observed: Abdul-Jabbar "has become a vital, dynamic and unorthodox cultural voice."

America's house was divided in 2016, as the nation took sides in a presidential contest that featured two highly controversial candidates, even as divisions between police and African-American communities continued to fester. It was a year of separations: Britons voted to leave the European Union, refugees continued to flee war-torn Syria for western Europe, and a host of familiar faces left the stage, from legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and regal golfer Arnold Palmer to widely beloved pop stars Prince and David Bowie. But there were thrills as well, from such heroes of the Rio Summer Games as Michael Phelps, Simone Biles and Usain Bolt, while carpool karaoke, Pokemon Go and a mom in a Chewbacca mask kept Americans smiling. Now the TIME Year in Review collects all the heartbreak and joy, all the year's best photographs and all the planet's most fascinating people in a richly illustrated book that will serve as a lasting testament to a most memorable year.

The new novel by NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, starring brothers Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. It is 1872, and a series of gruesome murders is the talk of London. Mycroft Holmes—now twenty-six and a force to be reckoned with at the War Office—has no interest in the killings; however his brother Sherlock has developed a distasteful fascination for the macabre to the detriment of his studies, much to Mycroft’s frustration. When a ship carrying cargo belonging to Mycroft’s best friend Cyrus Douglas runs aground, Mycroft persuades Sherlock to serve as a tutor at the orphanage that Douglas runs as a charity, so that Douglas might travel to see what can be salvaged. Sherlock finds himself at home among the street urchins, and when a boy dies of a suspected drug overdose, he decides to investigate, following a trail of strange subterranean symbols to the squalid opium dens of the London docks. Meanwhile a meeting with a beautiful Chinese woman leads Mycroft to the very same mystery, one that forces him to examine the underbelly of the opium trade that is enriching his beloved Britain’s coffers. As the stakes rise, the brothers find that they need one another’s assistance and counsel. But a lifetime of keeping secrets from each other may have catastrophic consequences...

The 74-year-old author, John M. Memory, realized in recent years that he has much important information that is seldom or never taught in college and university courses. After checking course descriptions of a major university in the Southeast, he undertook writing this book. Though John is not a health expert, he has had significant scholarly and professional experiences relating to health that have helped him in writing the 17 chapters about health. John learned much from using non-medical, life style approaches in preventing the fifth through the second most feared diseases–diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. For example, he rejected his doctors’ recommendations of taking a statin drug and, instead, has performed a heart and brain health routine he developed in 1982, with excellent results. Regarding the most feared disease, cancer, he learned in 2018 that, long after failed prostate surgery and radiation treatments, three alternative, holistic anti-cancer approaches have stopped the advance of his aggressive recurrent prostate cancer. In other chapters, John discusses the dangers posed by rampant ethnocentrism and xenophobia, how to teach moral behavior to children, the joys of frugal living, the importance of moral courage in work and government, origins of religion, the importance and challenges of high-risk activities and decision making, and much more. Since many people will disagree with him on one or several subjects, John hopes that readers will focus on chapters that can be most helpful for the reader.
